International Women’s Day

For International Women’s Day: Thursday 8th March 2018:

It’s International Women’s Day
Something we should celebrate.
I hope you’ll show others how
We deserve equality now.

Yes, there’s more still to do
But that’s what keeps us going.
Now we draw attention to
The benefits of multitasking.

It’s nearly “Mothering Sunday”
Recognising mothers’ roles.
But that’s just one facet
Of some women’s goals.

They don’t let motherhood
Hold them back from achieving –
Many are successful and good
With busy careers they lead in.

So well done all you women
Who make the species proud.
I admire your dedication
So let’s congratulate out loud.
